Verse of the Day

2 Peter 3:9

The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.

2 Peter 3:9

God is Patient

God is a patient God. This verse says that he does not want anyone to perish, but he wants all to come to know his saving grace. This could be one reason why time means nothing to him. He is patient and waiting for people to come to know Him.
The King James Version of the Bible uses the word “longsuffering” instead of the word patient. Even though God is patient, that does not mean he doesn’t suffer when his people reject him. He is a gentle and gracious God.

A Prayer to Remember

Dear Lord,
Thank you for your grace and love. Your love is everlasting. I praise you that you waited on me and gave me your salvation. Amen.
